Curt Menefee is an American sportscaster who is the host of the Fox network’s NFL show Fox NFL Sunday. His co-hosts are Jimmy Johnson, Terry Bradshaw, Howie Long, and Michael Strahan.
Menefee began his broadcasting career during college, juggling schoolwork with a five-day internship schedule at a local station near his alma mater, Coe College. His hard work paid off as he followed his passion for broadcast sports to Jacksonville, Madison, Des Moines and finally Dallas, where he won four Katie Awards, the Texas equivalent of an Emmy, for Best Sportscast and Best Sports Special. He then achieved success in New York City, where he won an Associated Press Award for Best Sports Reporter in New York and became one of the most popular on-air personalities in the city.
He has had roles as a radio host and play-by-play caller for FOX’s NFL and NFL Europe League coverage before moving to his current position in 2006. Menefee has also been the play-by-play announcer for Showtime’s ShoBox: The New Generation, the network’s program focused on most promising prospects in boxing. With additional appearances on MLB, UEFA Champions League, and International Boxing Organization broadcasts, Menefee has amassed a list of credentials rivaling anyone in the industry.
Since graduating from college, he has been to all seven continents, nearly 70 countries, and many of the world’s most famous landmarks. With favorite vacation spots including New Zealand and much of South America, Menefee approaches both his life and his career from a truly global perspective.
